New York City Subway Token Ring -
Just added these really nice looking NYC subway token rings to the lineup. These ring come out truly amazing. Where a piece of New York history on your finger.
New York subway token were used from 1953 - 2003
They had a few different styles. See them all at http://www.nycsubway.org/wiki/New_York_City_Subway_Tokens
The style that I use to make the token ring is:
Large Y" Token
- 1970-1972: 30 cents
- 1972-1975: 35 cents
- 1975-1980: 50 cents
Mintage 50 million. The large Y cutout comes in two varieties, one with larger lettering than the other. The large letter variety is slightly scarcer than the smaller letter variety. To tell the difference: The large letter variety looks like the lettering on the solid brass NYC token. On "NYC" the legs of the N are not deeply cut and there are no hooks on the C. The small letter type looks similar to the preceding small-Y variety, with both deeper cuts and hooks.

This is a portion of the email that a customer sent me.
I have a very unique quarter that I would like made into a ring, I swallowed this quarter when I was 10 years old and as the story goes my father was getting ready to do a tracheotomy with a ballpoint pen and I finally swallowed it, well took a few days of sifting through my crap and we found. I've held onto this coin for many many years approximately 42 years and I would like to have it turned into a ring that I can wear. It's heavily oxygenated as the acid in my stomach kind of did a number on it. It is a quarter and I'm not sure if you can turn that into a man's brain I'm going to measure with a piece of paper what size my finger is.
Is this doable based on my finger size?
